TO DO/SEE

VALLE DE BANDERAS, NAYARIT


VALLE DE BANDERAS:  The fastest route is to drive north to Bucerias and then head directly east towards the foothills of the Sierra Madres.  The road is straight and good, passing palms,  mango orchards and gleaming fields of corn. The ride takes approximately one hour from centro Vallarta.  In the midstof this beautiful, green rural area is the immaculate town named after its location - Valle de Banderas - "Valley of  Flags."
 
PLAZA - VALLE DE BANDERAS

The central plaza is a particularly pretty one, with a large bandstand adorned with "papel picado" and a fountain with lifesize figures of women offering ears of corn. The clinic took place around the corner from the plaza, inside an empty cement field surrounded by a white cement wall.  The name of this place is "la selva" ("the jungle").  A tent was set up to provide shade for the animals and vet team.  Balmy days continue,  with sweet sea breezes blowing on beaches and the malecón.
 
"LA SELVA" - VALLE DE BANDERAS

On the sidewalk outside, vendors were selling flowers, candies, balloons and stuffed animals for Valentine´s Day.  In México, it is more a day for friendships than lovers.
